I don't see why I would have to. I'm not as concerned with my XP computer seeing the Vista laptop. I really don't get why it won't let me see the folders.

I just installed it on my fiance's laptop and it works fine, but it doesn't look as pretty as the other Vista stuff. =P

True. "All About The Games" Should really be changed to "PC Games", that would reduce confusion.

I'm still working on Medium, I first wanted to get all 5s on Easy, which I accomplished early last week, and just haven't had time to play it lately (a co-worker of mine let me borrow Shivering Isles, so I'm going through that as well as playing C&C 3, so busy =P) I calculated that if they release a...

Vista Question - File Sharing

So, I've got two vista questions, but I figured I'd break them up into two threads, so one question doesn't get burried by the other. I recently bought my fiance a new laptop, nothing too fancy, but here are the specs: Acer Aspire Core Duo 1.73 GHz 1 GB DDR2 533 120 GB Intel GMA950 Vista Home Premiu...

Guitar Hero 2 for 360

Who else has been playing GH2 since it came out? I am absolutely loving it, but today, I was a little hacked off at Activision. They came out with the first set of track packs to download. Three songs per pack, 500 MS points each, or about $6.25 US. I personally think that is a little much for the n...

Over at the Quakecon forums, they have thread right now where they're debating which is better: the Antec 900 or the Lian Li PC-V1200Bplus II.

I personally prefer the Antec. I'm gunna go to Frys over the weekend, and if they have it for close to the Outpost price, I'd be tempted to pick it up.

I got a X2 4200 in my main rig and my work computer has a C2D E6400. I ran Super PI on both of them (that's about as far as I can go for benchmarking at work =P) and they were pretty equal. If I were to build a new machine, it would be hard to say which cpu I'd go with. Gun to my head, I think I wou...

Guitar Hero 2 for 360

Anybody else pick it up yesterday? I did and love it. I've been going through withdrawls since I traded in my PS2. We also picked up my Gamestop's last extra controller, so my fiance and I were able to rock out to co-op mode, very fun. I am a little disappointed that they didn't have any downloads r...

meh, I say. I don't see the point to have to spend all that money. Sure, you get a larger hard drive and a HDMI port, but I don't really need that much storage on my 360 and I'm getting great HD-ness out of the component cables I'm using.

Only problems with those are that I don't think they'll run BF2 or 2142.
